Weeaboo Wednesday – Knights of Sidonia

Weeaboo Wednesday – Knights of Sidonia

Some in the anime subculture of geekdom might shudder at the term Weeaboo, a non-sequitur term created originally by the Perry Bible Fellowship it’s said to be on the level of Otaku…however I am taking it back, and using it as a general term for being a Japanophile. So yes, welcome to Weeaboo Wednesday where […]

Weeaboo Wednesday – Riding Bean

Step into the wayback machine with me as I think back on one of the most bizarre anime I’ve ever watched.

Weeaboo Wednesday: We Need More Movies!

Weeaboo Wednesday: We Need More Movies!

I recently had the chance to see both Summer Wars and Evangelion 2.0: You Are (Not) Alone in movie theaters, and I’ll be the first to say that we need more anime films in American theaters!

Weeaboo Wednesday: What To Watch This Season

Now that 2011 is firmly upon us, it’s time for another new season of anime! There are many offerings to watch this winter, and I’ll be separating the wheat from the chaff by giving you (in no particular order) my top 5 picks for this season.

Weeaboo Wednesday: Fall Season Is Upon Us

Weeaboo Wednesday: Fall Season Is Upon Us

After a post-PAX hiatus due to life/work/aliens invading, Weeaboo Wednesday returns with a vengeance… at 11:15pm PST. It’s still technically Wednesday, right? Ahh fall season… so many shows, so little time to watch them all. Regardless, I’ve done my best to watch everything from the new fall season that looks even remotely interesting, and I’m […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Summer Season First Impressions Part 2

Disclaimer: The above video has nothing to do with anime or Weeaboo Wednesday. However, it’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while, so deal with it. It is also extremely NSFW. The weather is getting warmer, the sun is coming out more… you know what that means: Summer is here. To most people that […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Summer Season First Impressions Part 1

The weather is getting warmer, the sun is coming out more… you know what that means: Summer is here. To most people that means the beach and bbqs, but to us pasty white nerds it means a new season of anime. Once again MWN brings you first impressions and reccomendations of what to hit and […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Spring Season First Impressions Part 1

Weeaboo Wednesday: Spring Season First Impressions Part 1

After an extended hiatus due to me being way too busy with way too much stuff (then again, who isn’t these days?), Weeaboo Wednesday returns with force! That’s right kids, we just had our first weekend in April, and you know what that means… new spring anime season! At first glance, there were not very […]

Weeaboo Weekday: Tardiness, Giant Robots, and 30 Years of Emo Pilots

Weeaboo Weekday: Tardiness, Giant Robots, and 30 Years of Emo Pilots

Since today is Thursday, I figured I’d have to change the title of our not-so-punctual Weeaboo Wednesday. Just roll with it kiddies, there is something awesome contained within. What’s cooler than watching a show about giant robots? Seeing a real (I use the term “real” loosely) giant robot. For those who aren’t Gundam-obsessed, like myself, […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Detroit Metal City

Weeaboo Wednesday: Detroit Metal City

I love metal, so when I heard that there was a series called Detroit Metal City (an obvious play on KISS‘s Detroit Rock City) that was about a crazy metal band, I had to see it. I’ve always been a fan of Japanese metal, and a comedy OVA series about the subject sounded right up […]

Weeaboo Wednesday or: How I Learned to Stop Torrenting and Love the Netflix

Weeaboo Wednesday or: How I Learned to Stop Torrenting and Love the Netflix

One of the bigger problems anime fans run into is the method of how we get our sweet, sweet anime. If money isn’t an issue, then buying overpriced DVD sets is the way to go. If you’re like me, and money is tight, you have to resort to seedier methods like bittorrent. However, I’ve discovered […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Toradora!

Weeaboo Wednesday: Toradora!

Alright, fellow MWN’ers, I’ve got to make a serious confession. I am a 14 year old japanese girl trapped inside an overweight 22 year old male. In other words, I have a very soft spot for shoujo anime, which to you non-weeaboos is the equivalent of romantic comedy. Something about the way anime portrays the […]

Weeaboo Wednesday: Gundam 00 Season 2 Impressions

Weeaboo Wednesday: Gundam 00 Season 2 Impressions

One of the best series to come out of last year’s anime season was Mobile Suit Gundam 00. The fast paced action mixed with intense storytelling set it apart as a must watch series. Another things that set Gundam 00 apart was the top notch high definition animation, which was a first for the Gundam […]
